DJ Snake releases adorable pixel version of hit music video for ‘Taki Taki’Taki Taki Piel

DJ Snake is not done with his “Taki Taki,” which came out earlier in the fall, just yet. The Latin pop crossover number with Cardi B, Selena Gomez, and Ozuna was an instant global hit, shooting straight to the top of the charts worldwide. Its accompanying music video was originally premiered and released during the American Music Awards back in October, and it has since become the ninth fastest music video of all time to hit 100 million views.

The artists have now teamed up for a pixelated version of the hit music video. It follows the same story lines and visual concepts as the original, but showcases them through lego-like animated characters. The pixel video has already hit 1.1 million views in less than 24 hours, demonstrating that views will not be in short supply for “Taki Taki’s” animated video sibling either.

 

Marshmello’s ‘Alone’ music video collects one billion views

A single key to the meteoric rise of Marshmello, 2016’s “Alone” continues to make its impact known well into 2018. The upbeat number just garnered its one billionth view on YouTube — producing a comical sense of titular irony, since Marshmello is certainly not “Alone” in the context of the “one billion views club” or in terms of fan counts. The song’s achievement of the landmark one billionth view positions Marshmello among the likes of PSY, who garnered one billion views for “Gangnam Style,” Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, who achieved the same feat via “See You Again,” and Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, with their collaborative Spanish sizzler, “Despacito.” “Alone” notably went platinum upon its release on Monstercat, marking a milestone for both Marshmello and the label, as “Alone” signified Monstercat’s inaugural platinum record.

Marshmello’s newfound admission to the illustrious one billion views gang follows his recent victory at the 2018 American Music Awards, where Marshmello took home the award for “Favorite Electronic Dance Music Artist.” Marshmello went head to head with formidable fellow nominees, Zedd and The Chainsmokers.

Few tracks have the ability to take over hip-hop, latin music, electronic music and pop radio waves alike. Unsurprisingly though, star-studded collaboration “Taki Taki” produced by DJ Snake featuring Ozuna, Cardi B, and Selena Gomez has done just that. The release has surpassed over 47 million streams on Spotify alone in the first two weeks it has been out, and that number is only going to continue increasing with the drop of the track’s hotly anticipated music video. The video was premiered at the American Music Awards, and all four artists play a major role in the video.

The visuals are clouded in black and red with a dark and sexy motif, panning in on Ozuna under a pile of scantily clad women. He and Snake pan in and out of the picture until Cardi B erupts into focus. The video’s theme stays dark until Selena Gomez takes the later part of the video away, dancing is a bright forest with DJ Snake in the background. The video has no shortage of visual appeal packing in four dynamic artists and intricate set fixtures to amp up what is already the biggest song in the world right now.
